// Frendsbury Garden //

The friends of Frendsbury are working with volunteers with a spectrum of mental disabilities and mental health issues. The organiser, Lumen, invited me to join their weekly gardening sessions.

I felt so welcomed that I came back the next week and the week after, and the one after that…

During the two months I spent in the garden I created strong connections with the other volunteers, we were meeting in the sun and in the rain; we shared the same goals, we wanted to improve our wellbeing through gardening and social interaction and to take care of this green space which felt like a little island of greenery and freedom within the urban jungle that is London.
